Previous Events held
The first of the workshops took place on the 28th to the 30th October 2009, at the Constitution Hill, itself a site of struggle, and was attended by 17 women in the age groups ranging from 21 to 54, with varying levels of literacy.
Although the women came from the same national organisation, most of them had not met each other before, and seized the opportunity to network with one another, and in the process renewed their commitment to tackling and speaking out, (now in writing) about the challenges that face women in their organisation.
